A German market in northern Japan

The Munich Christmas Market in Sapporo originally started in 2002 as part of a sister city exchange activity with Munich. Japanese and German stalls sell decorations, food, and hot mulled wine to help promote friendly ties between the two cities.

Experience the Sapporo White Illumination

Branching out from the softly lit German market is the Sapporo White Illumination , another well-known winter attraction here. During the concurrent events, a generous portion of the park is decorated with twinkling lights and bright statues.

Eat, drink, and be merry

After buying some hot mulled wine or food, relax in the rooms available near the stalls. You can sit and warm up, or strike up a conversation with new friends you meet.
